The Computation of Orthogonal Independent Cluster Solutions and Their Oblique Analogs in Factor Analysis.
Hofmann, Richard J.
A very general model for the computation of independent cluster solutions in factor analysis is presented. The model is discussed as being either orthogonal or oblique. Furthermore, it is demonstrated that for every orthogonal independent cluster solution there is an oblique analog. Using three illustrative examples, certain generalities are made with respect to the class of independent cluster solutions which are generated by the orthomax criterion. A procedure is presented for comparing the simple structure of an orthogonal independent cluster solution with the simple structure of its oblique analog. (Author)
